There is no mistaking the style and sophisticated design of this exquisite dining set comprising a rare English antique Victorian pollard oak  extending dining table, circa 1860 in date and a set of twelve vintage  dining chairs. 

The styles that developed throughout the early 19th Century were an extension of the current political situations but also in accordance with the needs of the rising middle class during the industrial revolution. This impressive dining table is exemplary of the early Victorian era with its Pollard oak and bold moulded and ebonised edge.

This amazing table has four leaves and can comfortably seat twelve. The leaves can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion by a special winding mechanism. It has been hand-crafted from solid oak which is not only strong, but has a beautiful grain. The top has been veneered in rare Pollard oak, which is seen in the intricate burr.

The four leaves can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion by a special winding mechanism, the leaves can be easily stored away when not required.

The table is raised on four tulip-carved turned and fluted tapering legs ending in brass and porcelain caps and castors.
 
The set of twelve Vintage Regency Revival Swag Back dining chairs comprises ten side chairs and two armchairs. They have been masterfully hand crafted in a beautiful solid flame mahogany with a very high standard of workmanship and an enviable finish which is sure to impress. They feature an attractive swag back design which has very skillfully hand carved decoration and they also feature 'drop in' style seats which are upholstered in the finest claret damask.

There is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship of this handsome set, which is certain to become a treasured addition to your furniture collection, and a talking point with guests at meal times.

Pollard Oak
Pollarding is a pruning system in which the upper branches of a tree are removed, promoting a dense head of foliage and branches. It has been common in Europe since medieval times and is practised today in urban areas worldwide, primarily to maintain trees at a predetermined height. The bole of the tree, constantly cut back over a period of years, will eventually form a lump, or ‘burr’, which when sawn for veneer, gives a lovely grained, swirling figure.
The effect is similar to that of burr walnut with its distinctive speckled grain. Burrs, or ‘burls’, are growths which appear on the side of tree trunks, resulting from a tree undergoing some form of stress. They may be caused by an injury, virus or fungus.
During the 19th century great strides were made in the mechanisation of cabinet making. Marc Isambard Brunel [ Isambard Kingdom’s father] built the first steam driven saw mill, and invented a circular saw that could be used to cut veneers thinly and evenly for the first time. He also developed the first hydraulic veneer press. The figured wood cut from burrs and pollards is notoriously difficult to cut and lay: the wild grain which makes it so attractive results in a very delicate, brittle veneer. The new machines enabled the Victorian craftsmen to make the most of these beautiful timbers.
